Have used 2 stroke in all my other diesels but not in the disco yet, have not had it long but will prob use it.
always use low ash mineral oil like comma, it burns cleaner than diesel so cant block anything, burns hotter than diesel so you get a better burn and lubricates to stop the bio fuel % that attracts and holds water that really cant be that good for pumps etc. I would say to mix in bottle with a little diesel to dilute before adding as 2 stroke is quite thick and can take time to disperse in tank running the risk of blocking filters on vehicles that are fussy on filters, this is just my experience with using it in the past.

I have been using 2 stroke oil in my 2006 for the last 6 years or so.
I tend to find that I get fewer MPG if I don't add it
Not much but enough to keep using it.
Car has just gone over 125k and is running fine (other than torque converter rattling at certain loads - regulated to closed according to the IID)
Just got 30.8 on a run from near Saintes to Pau in France at average of 43mph as well as 29.0 @ 55 over the last 400 miles over to Nimes and back a bit.
This is on new Michelin cross climates, with 2 up and camping gear.(Remap, EGRs Blanked,Silicon I/C hose) from BAS, (Torque Convertor, Compressor, FL Wishbones, Alternator) by WD, Belts by Newbury4x4, Megaflush+extra cooler by GRGB, Diff+Transfer oils, ARB Bushes, Fuel filter, Fixed Towbar, Remote FBH.

Thanks for that! I have a feeling you are who I was talking about this with a couple of days ago in Letchworth 😁Propelled across the land in a carriage of no horse drawn, belching Satan’s black wind into our clean and local air.
